Bathroom Deep Sanitization

Bathrooms are germ-prone areas, especially in homes with multiple occupants. Frequent use and moisture make the area a breeding ground for mold and germs, requiring frequent cleaning to keep them at bay. Detailed, deep cleaning of your bathrooms helps to eliminate these issues and extend the life of fixtures and finishes. At Deserved Comfort, we offer detailed cleaning and sanitization services that turn your bathrooms into pristine retreats

A deep clean of your bathroom involves a thorough disinfection of the surfaces and materials. This includes cleaning and sanitizing the sink, tub, shower, toilet and floors. The key to effective sanitization Cleanfiniti is the use of an appropriate cleaning agent for the material being cleaned. The Deserved Comfort team is trained in the selection of cleaning agents for different materials, ensuring that they are properly cleaned and sanitized.

In addition to cleaning and sanitizing the surfaces, a good deep clean should include decluttering and reorganizing. This makes it easier to access all areas of the bathroom and reduces the number of items that could harbor bacteria or viruses. It is also important to remove and discard expired items from your bathroom.

Towels and other linens should be bleached or run through a sanitize cycle in the washer to kill germs and keep them fresh and clean. Shower curtain liners, bath mats and hand towels should also be washed regularly. Towels that are not cleaned regularly can develop mold and mildew, so you should wash them at least once every two weeks or more.

Using the right cleaning products and tools is essential for proper bathroom sanitization. The best choice is an EPA-approved sanitizer or disinfectant, such as the new Microban 24 antibacterial cleaner. This sanitizer is effective against Staphylococcus aureus and Enterobacter aerogenes bacteria, as well as the COVID-19 virus.

The first step in sanitizing your bathroom is to empty out all drawers and cabinets. Take everything out, toss what is old or broken, and wipe down all surfaces. This is the perfect time to sanitize your toothbrush handle, contact case and makeup brushes as well.

Showers and bathtubs are high-touch surfaces that require a deep cleaning, particularly after someone has been sick. The bathtub drain and shower floor should be sanitized with an appropriate cleanser or sanitizer to kill germs and prevent soap scum build-up. Shower curtains should be washed with regular detergent or sanitizer, and the liner and curtain should be washed regularly to avoid mildew and mold.

Getting your bathroom in top shape is one of the best things you can do to help fight COVID-19. A deep clean by a professional housekeeper like the Deserved Comfort team takes about 20-30 minutes for an average-sized bathroom. It can take up to an hour for a larger bathroom with lots of dirty and sticky surfaces. A home owner or DIYer trying to sanitize their own bathroom may be able to cut this time in half with careful planning and a lot of scrubbing.
